Atlas Model Railroad Co. will distribute four new Masterpiece Ho model vehicles in August , 2007, in three different paint and body schemes each. All of these prototypically correct ready to go models will be priced at between $14.95 and $16.95. Here’s a look at what’s coming down the pike!
Austro Daimler – Three models, the 1908 (Maja engine), 1914 (top up) and 1914 (top down) Austro Daimler was one of the worlds first automobile manufacturing companies, and today an Austro Daimler is quite a rare find.
1936 Chrysler Airflow Imperial Eight - In three versions, the Skytint Blue, Harvard Maroon, and Gunmetal Gray, the Chrysler Airflow Imperial Eight was the first production automobile to incorporate streamlining into its design, as well as other safety and handling features like a full-steel perimeter frame.
2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited – Presented in white, red and green, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is so popular you kind of wonder why they didn’t hit on this one a little sooner. While they’ve gotten away from the traditional two-door design (now four) it does look ever more like an SUV, this vehicle has more than doubled in sales since it’s introduction, and proudly carries on the more than 65 year Jeep tradition.
American Walk-In Van – Presented in three formats; white undecorated, Miracle bakery, and Specter Linens, this van is suitable for layouts from the 1960’s onward. You’ll find many uses for them, as they are in use as delivery trucks, bread trucks, linen supply trucks and even Police and Fire Department Special operations.
These Masterpiece models will add authenticity to any layout; but not until August!
